The Year in Review-October

By now Jeremy was nine months old, and my maternity leave was running out pretty fast....We had a plan for what to do after since I was not returning back to work...but it was still in progress...

We moved into our new house in the last weekend of September, and so basically we spent this month in the midst of moving madness....We couldn't find anything...especially me for some reason...I had to keep washing the same pair of jeans for a month straight because I couldn't find the box with my pants in it. (LOL)
We liked our new house even though it was a little smaller...it just gave us an excuse to get rid of a bunch of stuff we didn't really need in the first place...and we LOVE the neighborhood...it is SOOOO quiet...a nice break after Brown st...We have a Huge back yard, but can I say again...how much I DESPISE moving...just in case you didn't quite get it the first time I
mentioned it? Jeepers....I am tired even just thinking about it...


We had barely moved in, and Talon (my grandson) had his first birthday party. Krystal had it at Tots Cafe....A great idea since they can't wreck anything there....



He had a pretty good time, but we practically had to drag him out of a toy truck....very funny...he is a boys boy for sure....



The next weekend we went out to Lumsden for the Pumpkin Festival held at the Corn Maidens Market. Jeremy tried Pumpkin soup, which was a huge sucess...(we have since found out that anything with pumpkin is a HUGE success...he LOVES it...

They had face painting, and a corn maze...and of course LOTS and LOTS of pumpkins...We got some really good pictures...



Other highlites for the month....Jeremy got his first tooth...he stood about three weeks before that (at 8.5 months...)


We also had a birthday dinner for Bree who turned 15 this year. We had it at Thomas Cooks, as that is
where Krystal was working at the time,
and she wanted to buy us all supper...Who am I to argue??




It was a really warm fall...I was wishing we had more time for other stuff then unpacking....BUT that is pretty much what we did for the rest of the month...

Tot's Cafe looks like a great place to have a toddler's birthday. Wow what big gifts he received!
